We’ve marked it in the calendar for months and today it’s finally here! The Interior Design Show 2020 at the Metro Toronto Convention centre is the kickoff event of the year. Here are a few things we are looking forward to this year.
Opening night is always a fun time. We love being part of the great energy, excitement and fun at the opening night party. Every personality from interior design you can think of will be there, including close friends and inspirations. We like to kick off a new year of design with some delicious food, prosecco and DJ spinning some tunes.
Previous years’ concept homes have been stunning examples of engineering and design. Last year we saw the Great Lakes Backcountry Cabin. The cottage arrived prefabricated and flat-packed, and with pre-engineered connections. We can’t wait to see this year’s interior design show concept home. Lauded as “a multisensory experience of the future of living and an exploration of the role that our homes can play in improving our overall wellbeing.”
A wonderful feature of this year’s interior design show is the Makers platform. With artisans from all over the world, and also here in the GTA, it spotlights their creations and craft. We cant wait to see their hand crafted and hand finished creations like lighting, rugs, seating and furniture.
We are increasingly focused on our wellbeing and the alignment of balance between work and pleasure. As designers, our job is to design your space with lifestyle in mind and to create an oasis for you mentally and physically. Which is why we are looking forward to the installation at this year’s interior design show focusing on meditation and regeneration. A longtime partner of ours, Sheridan Nurseries has created a plant enriched oasis right inside the convention centre iself!
As the IDS show kicks off this morning, we are getting ready for tonight and can’t wait to see what it has in store. With hundreds of exhibitors and guest speakers, maker and innovators, this year’s interior design show will be sure to stun. We are looking forward to soaking up all the inspiration and knowledge offered. We will see you there!
